part of a mural

Ahhhhhhhh home……. but something lingers besides bug bites and paint splatters. Something you can’t quite put a finger on…

Our last room of murals needed to be done quickly. We talked about doing non-descript children so those who thought they were not artists (ha!) could help. Silouettes and landscape shadows were perfect for the group effort.

After we decided, I read this in a book by Dutch Sheets on “Intercessory Prayer”.

“God made us so much the same as Himself that it was illusionary. ‘And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them’ (Gen 1:27). The Hebrew word for “image” is tselem which involves the concept of a shadow, a phantom or an illusion.” page 26

Created in His image we are ALL creators too.
Christ in us – His Spirit always with us.
